The presentstudy aimed to provide preliminary evidence forthe role of uncertainty related emotions in categorical accentuation. Participants had to estimate the length of lines varying in length, which depending on the conditions were or were not associated with categorical labels. To explore the emotional determinants of categorical accentuation we included additional label condition, in which participants were induced to feel fear (i.e. the emotion theoretically defined by the appraisal of low...

: Studies have shown that affective states could be used as diagnostic information for the assessment of situational demands and that, as such, they can regulate resource mobilization. Accordingly, it was found that negative feelings cause overestimation of situational demands, which then leads to effort mobilization during performance on easy tasks but disengagement on difficult tasks. The present research investigated whether this emotion-motivation link could explain the usual differences in ...

Various factors can impact the level to which people conform to other’s. An important, yet unanswered question is how emotions could influence conformity levels. We predicted that specific emotions, which embody an underlying appraisal of uncertainty about the world, would lead people to feel more uncertain and subsequently more susceptible to others’ influence. To test this hypothesis, participants (N = 78) induced to feel sad, happy or angry had to perform a highly ambiguous numeric estimation...

In the present study, we tried to replicate a classic Asch effect in the cultural context of BosniaHerzegovina and to explore the potential impact of group similarity on conformity. To answer these questions Bosniak (Muslim) students (N = 95) performed classic Asch's line judgment task in the presence of five confederates (the majority) who were ostensibly either of a similar ethnic origin (ingroup), different ethnic origin (out-group) or no salient ethnic origin. The task involved choosing one ...

Past research suggests that students in social science often become more egalitarian while students in business and economics show a trend in the opposite direction. Using a cross-sectional study in which we compared first and third year students from different academic environments, we wanted to explore these issues and to test whether life goals may account for potential ideological differences among them. Psychology and economics students at first and third year of their respective academic g...

In an attempt to identify the social factors that are responsible for differences in people’s attitudes and behavior, research has found that higher education leads to liberalisation in students sociopolitical orientations, and a careful review of the literature also points to specific college-related effects. It turns out that social science students are more liberal at the end of their studies than engineering or hard science students. Research showing no significant differences in prejudice a...

Knjiga “Klasicne teorije emocija u svjetlu suvremenih empirijskih spoznaja” je strukturirana u sest poglavlja. U uvodnom dijelu su elaborirani koncepti emocija, afekt i raspoloženje. Afekt predstavlja nadređeni pojam koji obuhvaca emocije i raspoloženje. Prema tome, emocije bi predstavljale intenzivna afektivna stanja koja traju nekoliko sekundi, dok je raspoloženje difuzno stanje slabijeg intenziteta koje može trajati. S obzirom da su u knjizi u fokusu emocije, u tekstu koji slijedi su detaljno...
